British Columbia is one of the most spectacular places in North America to ride a motorcycle. If you love to ride your motorcycle around BC, you need to make sure you have the right kind of motorcycle insurance in place. More and more BC motorcycle riders are getting their motorcycle insurance through one of our InsureBC office locations.
What Motorcycle Coverage do I need in BC?
Similar to ICBC auto insurance, it is mandatory for all BC motorcyclists to carry standard insurance that covers third-party liability, accident benefits, and uninsured motorist protection. These standard coverages are part of what is offered through the ICBC motorcycle insurance program. Optional motor vehicle coverage includes having coverage for damage or loss; such as comprehensive, collision or increased liability limits. Our team of insurance experts will introduce a range of these coverages that would protect you against the damage or complete loss of your motorcycle caused by theft, fire or other unforeseen events.
